Paula Winslowe (March 23, 1910 - March 6, 1996), sometimes credited as Paula Winslow, was a radio and television actress and is known for her role as Bambi's mother in the 1942 movie Bambi.
On radio, she was heard in many shows, including The Life of Riley, Big Town and Broadway Is My Beat, and she played the role of Mrs. Martha Conklin in Our Miss Brooks on both radio and television. Winslowe was cast in numerous TV shows, including I Love Lucy and at least one episode of the courtroom drama series Perry Mason : in the season six, 1962 episode entitled "The Case of the Unsuitable Uncle", she played a night court judge. She also voiced Greta Gravel on The Flintstones (ep.The Entertainer).
In animated films, she did two voices in Bambi: Bambi's mother and the pheasant who panics when the hunters come leading to her demise.
When actress Jean Harlow died on the set of the film Saratoga in 1937, it was decided that the film, 90% of which was completed, would be finished using a body double (Mary Dees) for Harlow, however Dees's voice was higher than that of Harlow. Winslowe stepped in as a voice double and the film was released to great success.
She died in her home at the age of 85 in the Van Nuys section of Los Angeles.
